Willington Cricketer Hits Third Straight Hundred….All Not Out

One not out hundred is great, two not out hundreds is brilliant, but three straight not out hundreds is absolutely amazing.

Meet Willington Cricket Club overseas player, Australian Reagan Klemt, who did exactly that, this weekend.

Reagan’s last three innings: 136, 101 & 108 all finished not out.

Reagan said, “I’m really happy with my performances over the last few weeks. I feel like I’ve worked really hard so it’s nice for that to translate into runs. At the end of the day though I’m just happy to put the team into winning positions, and hopefully I can continue to do so in the final 3 games of the season.”

Director of Cricket, Karl Brown said, “Reagan has shown a talent all season but especially over the last few weeks. He has learned a great deal about English conditions and put a great deal of time in, off the field to improve and develop. He will go into his new season back home with some valuable experience to help his game.”

Willington formed in 1904 and play in the Dukes North East Premier league. They have one of the best grounds in the region, thanks to loyal groundsmen John Coe & David Dixon, they also have an amazing junior set up, thanks to lead coach Darren Brown and the fantastic team of volunteers.  In fact, all the volunteers at Willington deserve huge credit for the hard work they put in helping to make this club great.
